Kisber (1873–1895) was a Hungarian-bred thoroughbred racehorse and sire. In a career that lasted from 1875 to 1876 he ran seven times and won three races. In the summer of 1876 he became the third of six horses to win both The Derby and the Grand Prix de Paris. He was the second foreign-bred horse, after Gladiateur in 1865, to win the Derby: he remains the only Hungarian-bred horse to do so. At the end of the season he was retired to stud.
In the early 20th century, acclaimed antique print collector, Paul Victorius of Charlottesville, VA purchased many of these original copper plates from Europe and created restrikes and had them beautifully hand colored. This engraving stems from that collection. Excellent condition with bright hand coloring on heavy paper.
